I didn't hate the world or society... well, I did, but not enough to be a goth. I also was not depressed enough, or emotionally unstable... well I was kind emotionally unstable, but not enough to conform to a group called "emo kids". I was just exceeding bored all the time. So rather than become an "emo kid", I became a gamer. And life was less boring. Besides, it never really got popular in my area (I didn't live in a white washed town, or a just plain white area).

And for that, I thank god I didn't go to a white school, if the shit I see in the movies or south park was real.

At my schools, it wasn't the "emo/scene/goth kid" that ever was a thing, but the fashion. A good many of the "scene kids" were popular students. As for me, I guess I was a psuedo-goth/emo. A crap ton of family drama hit when I was 12 (courtesy of my older sister's obnoxiously rebellious phase), as well as my dog dying, and having had moved to a new town. I wore some black, kept to myself, was pretty bitchy, and draped my bangs in front of one of my eyes. Once the drama relented and my family adopted new dogs (during high school), I made good progress with opening up. The dogs mostly did it. A part of me had unreasonably blamed myself for factors surrounding my first dog's passing, which the new dogs helped me handle.

Yupp but had a emo/goth look for the longest time and always had my hair in my face as I was shy so I hid behind my hair. I always wore skinny jeans and black and only wore DC shoes as I used to skate board. Also wore a lot of black eye liner and dyed my hair a lot still do. I didn't do it because it was "in" just felt comfortable.

I knew a fair number of people like that in high school, and while I've always been your garden-variety nerd, image-wise, I got along well with them despite not being into the style. Aside from the kids you generally wanted to avoid anyway (the ones who were usually up to no good), the schools I went to weren't generally very clannish, and people usually had an easy time looking past someone's style and hobbies and being friendly.

Then again, that could just be my general impression as someone who tended to keep to himself most of the time.

I think it was underground I don't think it was mainstream to be honest.

Man I thought those kids were just odd balls, I would laugh at them with my friends. As well just avoid them in general.

It was never really a thing in any of the places I lived in, I've always medium hair cuts and wearing black was cool though(even before it was a "thing"). The reason I'v always liked medium haircuts is probably because, being partly black, I am unable to have hair like that. I still like post-hardcore, gauges, etc.; but I don't dress like them or anything(I still wear the band shirts though).

And I think there might be a good amount of them left in California, I remember going to a show and seeing a lot of them. There were none when I moved here, so there's no way that I can tell if it's completely died out or not... I also live in a high-end area where the mall doesn't have a hot topic, so there wouldn't bee any reason for "emo/scene" kids to come over here.

Never got into the emo/goth look or whatever. Though quite a few of the girls at my schools did.


I was a bum. I wore a hoodie everyday even when it started getting warmer, also wore shorts most of the year until there was snowfall then I would wear jeans.

yeah....im guilty of being like that when I was in HS >.< it kept going on until a few years ago.

I remember...almost my entire wardrobe was dark colored and from hot topic. I had short hair, layered bob cut. never dyed my hair since it was too much work lol. when I started dating my current by a few years back, I started wearing more colors. now the only hot topic shirts I own are the soft kitty warm kitty shirts, comic books, or anime related.

the emo/scene kid thing is still popular here where I live, but it's slowly, and I mean slowly, going down to people becoming "hipsters"
